    Lyrics

    It wouldn't take a long time
    To explain what lies between us
    And it wouldn't take a genius
    To work out what the scene is
    It might just take a pilot
    To give you a natural high
    But you're sending off those bottle tops
    For your free piece of mind!
    And are you just waving or drowning?
    It's so hard to tell when you're so far away

    Oh innocence has passed you by
    A long long time ago
    I was the fly upon your wall
    And I saw what you know
    Your pornographic priestess left you for another guy
    You frighten little children and you always wonder why
    Always wonder why

    The mercury is rising
    And it's not all that surprising
    In the land of milk and honey
    Where you make big money
    And it always keeps the rain off
    And it always keeps you dry
    But back home the people hate you
    And you never did know why
    But I think I'm going to tell you
    Just give me fifty thousand lire for my thoughts

    Oh innocence has passed you by
    A long long time ago
    I was the fly upon your wall
    And I saw what you know
    The supermarket checkout girl
    Once smacked you in the eye
    When you eat no one else does
    But you always wonder why
    Always wonder why

    It would take a gunshot
    Just to clear your head awhile
    And after all this time
    How can you stand there look at me and smile?

    Now are you waving or just drowning?
    It's so hard to tell with you so far away

    Oh innocence has passed you by
    A long long time ago
    I was the fly upon your wall
    And I saw what you know
    Degeneration suits you, now I'm going home to cry
    You won't be seeing me again
    But you'll aways wonder why
    Always wonder why
